    Like all of Holling C. Holling's excellent books, readers will learn natural history almost effortlessly through an engaging story of a creature living and exploring its environment, and beautiful, detailed illustrations. Pagoo takes place in an ocean tidepool. Little Pagarus, or Pagoo, is a newly-hatched hermit crab, no larger than a pencil dot. His chances of survival are slim, but he has his instinct, affectionately titled "Old Pal" to guide him through the trials of growing up. Through the book he grows from a soft, translucent feathery being to a real hermit crab with claws and a shell home. Through it all, readers will come to learn about hermit crabs, other tide-pool and shallow ocean-dwellers, how they interact, and which predators little Pagoo needs to watch out for. With its intricate illustrations, personal story, and excellent blend of fact and fictional story, this book, first published in the '50's, surpasses any book on the subject I've seen today! - Jess
